Fullness under the chin, jowls, and in the neck area is one sign of aging that is impossible to hide or conceal with clothing. If you are concerned with accumulations of chin and neck fat or drooping jowls, you are among many who want a solution to this cosmetic flaw. A recent study conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found that 68% of people were unhappy with their double chin or the full appearance of their neck
Having a double chin is more than a cosmetic annoyance. For men, it can mean being very uncomfortable when wearing a suit and tie, which can make working in a professional capacity unpleasant. Another liability of a double chin is it gives the impression of being overweight, even in those of normal weight.
Drooping jowls are another obstacle to overcome with facial appearance. Jowling gives an aged appearance to the face. Jowls can be genetic. They can also be because of the loss of elasticity in the facial skin causing a laxity to the area. Another very overlooked aspect is the loss of midface volume. As we age, we naturally lose the cheek fat pad which lifts the skin. The bones of the midface also change with age.

Several factors come into play, but our experienced providers at Aesthetic–Facial and Body Rejuvenation can help you plan a course to tryand hold back orturn back the hands of time.
